QualityShells Running Scared?

Just got an email from QualityShells:
To whom it may concern,
We have decided to end our affiliate program. After many discussions we have decided
that we do not want to take any chances with search engine problems that may arise from
duplicate content. The way google has been tweaking filters have been making us
We dislike ending the program with the great affiliates in the SAS community but feel
it is in our best interest to do so.
Please remove QualityShells.com from you sites.
It was nice working with everyone and apologize for any inconveniences, Jim
PS emails about particulars on why we ended the program will not be answered.
After G's pruchase of DoubleClick and this post on Matt Cutts blog I can understand the fear of an online merchant.
I've seen several of my high ranking content sites fall off the GooWagon while adsense scraper and "search" sites rise like rancid cream to the top of the SERPs.
I'm not complaining though as I've always known the 'net to be an evolving beast. I've built some very profitable harnesses but the thing is with the way google is stomping their feet it's getting harder to find a place not to get squashed. But then again, that's the fun of an online business...

It sure would have been nicer if they'd:
A) Given more notice, to let us find replacement vendors.
B) Dumped the affiliates with sites that were clearly copies of their site's text and such, while keeping those of us with truly original pages.
Sigh. A lot of work, down the tubes.
Anyone know of any other seashell vendors with a good affiliate program?

That's got to be the stupidest reason ever for closing a program.

I agree. When they're that ill informed, you really don't want to work with them anyhow. That chicken little stuff would have surfaced some other way sooner or later, probably sooner.

Firing part of your sales force is not a good way to make more sales.
